Not much to report from this past week. Lots of running around and normal everyday errands, but not much in the way of excitement.
On a positive note, I didn't forget to get the kids to any of their activities this week =) (This has been a problem for me lately. It seems that my kids have all sorts of new activities, and I like to forget about them).
Everyone is finally completely healthy again, which is really nice after a couple weeks of sickness. Now I no longer have an excuse for not getting out the door and running. So tomorrow I am determined to start fresh and get into training mode. Jared and I have signed up with 10 other people from church to run in the Wasatch Back, which is a relay that goes from Logan to Park City. We are both very excited and nervous about this adventure!
On the scrapbooking front, I was able to complete several layouts tonight, most of which were for challenges being hosted over at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking. I plan to take photos tomorrow and share right here on the blog (as well as the great, inspiring gallery over at SAS).
Another exciting development: I finally, after 3 years, bought a co-ordinating bedding set for our bed! Yep, we have been using non-matching, unexciting bedding for three years! When we moved into our current home, we finally had a bedroom big enough for a King sized bed, so we splurged and bought one (well the mattress, box spring, and basic bed frame, we still don't have a fancy bed)! But, since we hadn't determined a color scheme for our bedroom, we held off on buying much in the way of bedding, besides a basic sheet set and basic, solid colored comforter. Fast forward to this week: I am roaming the aisles at Wal Mart and on an end cap I see a bedding set that includes sheets, pillow cases, shams, a bed skirt, 4 decorative pillows and the comforter, all for 89.95 (well actually is it supposed to be 99.95, but they had it under a sign for 89.95 so they gave me that price). The bargain hunter in me realizes that this is an excellent deal. Heck, sheets will run you around $50 most of the time for a King sized bed. As the colors were some of my favorite (brown and tealish blue) and it wasn't a floral pattern (Jared's stipulation..no girly bedding for him!); the price was excellent; and I have been itching to buy new bedding...I took the plunge!
